These almonds are crack. Crunchy, cinnamon-sugar roasted nuts are so comforting and delicious! I've been poppin em in my mouth all day :) They're easy to make - simply toss them in fluffy egg whites and a mixture of sugar, cinnamon, brown sugar, and a dash of salt and throw them in the oven. What's even better about this recipe is that you can make them in a toaster oven just like I did! I don't have an oven in my apartment here in Hong Kong, and these babies were easy enough to slow roast in my handy toaster oven. You can use this recipe with your favorite nuts - they're super addicting and make for great gifts! Let's get roasting!
This classic snack is my go-to for potlucks, last minute parties, or easy, delicious gifts. These are the perfect solution for when you're in a jam and need something that's a little more special than picking up something in the supermarket bakery. It takes about 10 minutes from start to finish, and tastes so much better than the store-bought Rice Krispie Treats. These babies are light and fluffy, buttery and perfectly sweet and salty. Let's get cookin!
This month’s #MISSDISH is a fun one. Growing up, fruit roll-ups and fruit snacks were some of my favorite snacks at lunchtime. One pack was never enough, and I always saved the strawberry ones for last. Over the years I’ve learned about what types of ingredients make these type of snacks so yummy. Tons of sugar, corn syrup, and other GMOs. One roll of Fruit by the Foot contains 2 tsp of sugar. Often fruit roll-ups don’t even contain real fruit. I decided to experiment with different ways to make snacks that were just as delicious but much more health conscious.
Making homemade fruit roll-ups is way easier than you think. You can use this recipe with any fruit! It’s delicious with strawberries, mango, any blend of berries, even apples and watermelon. With two organic ingredients, you know exactly what’s going into these snacks. These are great for everyone in the family - perfect for kids and great to pack for work. Let’s get cookin!
Summer is just around the corner! Warmer weather often means showing off a little more skin, and I’ve got the perfect homemade lip/body scrub that will have your skin glowing. It’s entirely organic and better yet, totally edible :) Using my basic recipe for a skin scrub, you can customize it to your scent/flavor preferences! I love peppermint because of its effervescence, but vanilla, lavender, almond, coconut, lemon, orange, raspberry, strawberry, and even pumpkin pie extracts would be amazing in this scrub! It’s fun to whip up homemade treatments for your skin because it leaves out all the chemicals found in store bought products. Your skin is your largest organ, and whatever you put on it is easily absorbed into your system. My skin is extremely sensitive so I love finding new ways to DIY with natural ingredients.
